private gig = loose & fun
david brand knows how to throw a party. open bar all night, catering never ran out & the gourds played 2 sets...basically, a gourds fan's dream. song list says it all, but I will say that my personal highlights were: (1) claude starting waterbag off-the-cuff on his keyboards and watching the rest of the band fall right into place (haven't seen that tune in years), and (2) getting kev to laugh during "troubled" by throwing a sign at his feet that read, "a cappella ending please"...which is something I've been trying to get them to do again since they stopped back in the mid-90s. anyway, great party, brand..thanks for taping it, peter!
